21-Days to Free Your Space
We have all been taught to buy, consume and collect stuff. Our lives are FULL of stuff. Our closets are overflowing with clothes we don’t wear. Our junk drawers are spilling over with knick knacks we don’t understand or use. But this extra stuff and junk isn’t just limited to our home. We are busy people living in a busy world. Sometimes that means we choose junk food over clean food. We even fill our hearts, minds and soul with critical and judgmental thoughts. If this sounds like you, it’s time to clean house. Let me help you let go of some of that clutter filling up your home, body and spirit. Let’s make room in your life for what you really want.
21-Days to Rejuvenating Sleep
As a woman who has been running a successful business for two decades now, I am often asked: How do you get it all done? How are you so productive? Get online, and you will see this buzzword, productivity, everywhere. There is a whole business around productivity: apps, coaches, planners, you name it. Don’t get me wrong, there really are some remarkable tools out there. But one of the best things you can do for your productivity is SLEEP! Sleep is often misunderstood and undervalued. That is why I had to create 21-Days to Rejuvenating Sleep. So I could help people see that sleep is not replaceable. In fact, sleep is the first step, the starting block to living a healthy, energetic and vibrant life.

Body Talk Quiz
Your body talks to you every moment of every day. It gives you messages all the time. Your body can tell you if coffee before breakfast is messing with your blood sugar. Your body can tell you if milk is good or bad for your digestion. Listening to your body is vital to your health. By listening to those messages, you can begin to create a custom wellness plan that will increase your energy and overall vitality. I use the Body Talk Metabolic Assessment Form with every client. I use it as both a diagnostic tool and as a way to measure progress in their wellness journey. Tune into your well-being.

nutreince – THE MULTIVITAMIN REINVENTED
Mira Calton’s story is miraculous. Her diagnosis set her off on a journey to find a solution. To find answers she went on a journey outside of Western Medicine. That is how she met Jayson. Together Mira and Jayson created the micronutrient rich vitamins and a plan. This plan and way of life completely reversed Mira’s advanced osteoporosis. This is pretty powerful stuff… If you would like to hear more about their product and Mira’s story check out the Calton’s on my radio show.
Our genes are not our destiny. The study of epigenetics shows us that diet, toxicity, digestive health, or a significant trauma can all play a role in gene expression. Today there a number of services that have become available to help you better understand your DNA. 23andMe.com is one of my favorites. It is an affordable yet comprehensive test. With a simple at-home saliva sample and a few weeks you will have access to a personal genetic report and a document that shows you where your ancestors came from.
Alen Air Purifier
Today, it doesn’t matter if you don’t live in a polluted area. Toxins are found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, cleaning products, body lotion, make up, the paint on the walls in our homes, even on the couch we sit on every day with our family. I don’t want to overwhelm you with this, but it is true and knowledge is power. One way we can battle environmental toxins is by breathing in clean air.
It is no secret that I love green smoothies. I love starting my day with them or sipping on one for an afternoon snack. Having a good blender can make all the difference in the world. Nobody wants to buy a blender that’s not going to do a decent job. That’s why I love KitchenAid. I love how I can blend all of the ingredients to a creamy consistency in 30 seconds or less.

It is said that sitting is the new smoking… It is sad, but true. We have to move! Right now, most of us sit for the majority of our day. We sit at our desks for around eight hours. Then we get home and sit at a dinner table. Some of us, many of us, follow up dinner by sitting on the couch and watching our favorite show on Netflix. To move more, first you need to be aware. How many steps do you take in a day? How long to do you walk? The Garmin Vivofit can be your movement tool and accountability partner.

I believe it is important to put the O.I.M.F. (Odds in my favor.) Part of doing that is is being prepared for the uncertain health events that often arise. Also, part of putting the O.I.M.F. is prevention through self-care. You can use an HSA for massages, chiropractic care and acupuncture. (Note: Holistic prevention practices and treatments aren’t always covered by traditional insurance.)
